Welcome to Famous Fido Rescue and Adoption Alliance

Every day, healthy Chicagoland companion animals, and animals all across America, are being destroyed because far too many are not finding a home. We want to help make Chicago a model "NO KILL" city where every adoptable companion animal can find a good home. And by doing so, help influence the way other cities care for their companion animals. We passionately believe it can - and must - be done. We believe that responsible stewardship of Chicago land's companion animals is an imperative. And that it can happen if we all work together with this common goal. Watch our video.

Vision and Mission a reality. And the many ways you can help.

What happens when you leave your pet at a shelter?

Famous Fido works with overcrowded Chicago-area shelters to rescue adoptable dogs that are at high risk of euthanasia, and to find them loving homes. We have a small boarding facility and a growing foster network. Our animals are vet checked, spay/neutered, vaccinated, and micro chipped. We encourage all potential guardians to commit to training and working with our animals to make them the best companion they can be. The $200.00 adoption fee helps offset cost of caring for our animals. To schedule an appointment to meet and greet any of the dogs shown above give us a call at 773-907-0305.
